Welcome to Six Feet Over!
Six Feet Over is a non-profit organization that prevents suicide and helps individuals heal in the wake of suicide loss in Michigan.
By educating individuals and cultivating awareness about mental illness and suicide, as well as assisting individuals with the resources they need, at the time they need them most, Six Feet Over is enabling Michigan communities to prevent, intervene, and heal from suicide, improving our public health for current and future generations.
Are you in need of assistance?
Six Feet Over can provide information and resources, financial assistance to those who have lost a loved one, and speakers for events in the Detroit community.

Are you looking for ways to help?
We depend on the wonderful individuals who volunteer their time and donate their hard-earned money. If you want to get more involved, we’re always welcoming in the Six Feet Over family.

The greatest benefit we offer is assistance to families who recently lost loved ones to suicide. The unexpected costs of losing a loved one can make the grieving process even more difficult, so we coordinate direct donations to those families.
